Western Digital My Cloud EX2 WDBVKW0000NCH Review

Good news to all travelers out there as you can now use a speedy and affordable server whenever you are on the go. What’s even better is that the Western Digital My Cloud EX2 WDBVKW0000NCH comes with a mobile enabled cloud feature which I doubt will disappoint any frequent traveler out there. Although this is a good server to use when on the go, it comes with a couple of flaws. The mobile app may limit you when playing certain file formats and the server can only allow up to 4TB storage. It also doesn’t have a search function, but there is more to this stunning beauty than these minor flaws. Let’s have a look at what to expect.



Have you used My Cloud EX4 or My Cloud? Well, expect the same features with this newest release. Nevertheless, you will be expecting something new that this server has to offer. According to expert tests, it turns out that this is the best performing out of the 3 servers in the My Cloud series. What’s more, it allows you to replace internal drives without the help of a technician. As you would expect, the pricing is very friendly and you can opt for a cheaper one that excludes the hard drive.



If you want to set up a home office with about 5 users, then this is the best server we have right now in terms of performance, features, ease of use and affordability. WD even allows you to use drives from other manufacturers but still promises to honor their 3 year warranty. Its design is super and it looks just like a thick book placed on a table standing uprightly. Installing drives takes less than a minute and there are LED lights to show you the power status as well as the drives’. You can get a maximum of 8TB storage space when on RAID 0 but this is highly discouraged as it may lead to data loss. It comes with 2 WD Red drives set up on RAID 1 on default.



When it comes to setting up the Western Digital My Cloud EX2 WDBVKW0000NCH, it’s just as simple as My Cloud EX4 or My Cloud. The servers are very similar as mentioned earlier. Once you have plugged in the server, you are ready to go and you can start using it as a shared storage space and a back up destination. You will have to use the default shared folders namely Time machine, smart ware and public backup.



Without having to deal with intricate details, we can assure you that the Western Digital My Cloud EX2 WDBVKW0000NCH server is better than the already exceptional My Cloud. You will be amazed by its data redundancy thanks to its two servers. This comes in handy when one drive decides to fail. We can’t complete this review without mentioning its outstanding performance. It’s really easy to use and affordable making it one of the best entry level servers we have around. This is a perfect fit for someone looking for good performance but if you need more features, you can check out the DS712+ from Synology.
